And, yet, John Corzine still walks the streets, a free man

Wells Fargo Home Mortgage (WFC) has fired a Des Moines worker over a 1963 incident at a Laundromat involving a fake dime in the wake of new employment guidelines.

Richard Eggers, 68, was fired in July from his job as a customer service representative for putting a cardboard cutout of a dime in a washing machine nearly 50 years ago in Carlisle, the Des Moines Register reported Monday.
Interesting. Democratic kleptarch Barney Frank engineers underwriting changes that caused a real estate collapse, and retires this year with all of his lavish government perks. The infamous Jon Corzine, investment banker and Obama bundler, can't account for hundreds of millions of dollars of missing customer funds, but is cleared of any criminal wrongdoing. This poor putz gets canned for a minor crime committed 50 years ago.

I know, life isn't fair. But sometimes it's a hell of a lot more unfair that it has to be.

And he was 19 years old at the time, too.

While Corzine and Fwank were definitely old enough to know better.

The regulatory rules forbid the employment of anyone convicted of a crime involving dishonesty, breach of trust or money laundering.


Breach of trust?

Obo the Clown is lucky that doesn't apply to him.

Yep, what Corzine and his crew did was flatly unlawful, any way you look at it, yet the SEC doesn't seem to care...
